Well, I put a little something together for portable listening. I compressed down the stripboard cmoy design so that it'd (juuuuuust) fit into a skinny little eclipse can. I've tried mounting into a full sized can before, but that was too easy. This one will never fit a 9v and a cmoy, at least as far as my skills at present allow, but I've got a nice insulated battery clip and I'm going to strap the battery to the flat side of the can, hopefully resulting in a pocketable device to go with my ipod touch. I'm on the lookout for a line out device for it too, but I'm not sure how well my high-off-low style switch will go with no volume control on the device too.
I forgot to take any pictures during assembly, but I'm going to probably have it apart again before it's permanently put together so I'll post more later.
has anyone successfully used potting epoxy to seal up small amps like this? Would the compound maybe run into swtiches and so on and stop them working? It seems like it'd be a good method of keeping stress on internal components and wires down in such a small device which will be getting bumped around a fair bit.
edit: awesome, I can embed images finally!
